Recently published White Paper discusses the importance of clinical diagnostics laboratories having a capable system to handle molecular testing needs
The laboratory industry’s forward thinkers define molecular diagnostics and genetic testing as both the future of pathology and the #1 opportunity to add clinical value while earning appropriate reimbursement.
Personalized medicine and predictive medicine have become a reality. As molecular technology and personalized medicine increasingly becomes the default position for clinical diagnostics laboratories, these modalities place significant demands on laboratory information systems. Although hospitals and healthcare institutions often focus on an electronic medical records system that includes a laboratory information system (LIS), those LIS’s do not typically have the functionality needed to handle current molecular testing needs, or needs expected in the near future.
DarkDaily.com is pleased to offer a recently published White Paper that discusses the trends in increasing use of genetic and molecular testing, the growth of big data in healthcare, and the challenges facing laboratories in handling the complexities of personalized medicine. (more…)
